Today we are talking hair.
Specifically hair products and hair health.
And mainly because I’ve had a lot of people asking me how I keep my red hair color without it fading after 3 days.
Let me start by saying that I have the most annoying hair when it comes to what products I can use and what works for me, so when I find something I like, I really commit and it’s hard for me to switch it up.
BUT, when I got the opportunity to collab with Hairstory, I have to say I was too intrigued by their company, loved their message way too much, and the product (New Wash) sounded too amazing to pass it up.
And I think it’s safe to say it’s one of the smartest beauty decisions I’ve made.
If you’ve never heard of Hairstory, here’s the scoop:
+ Michael Gordon (the founder of Bumble and Bumble), started this company after selling BB to Estee Lauder in 2006. He really began to look at the industry and study what was wrong with shampoo. He determined that a lot of the shampoos out there all contained the same ingredient found in industrial cleaners. Detergent. Like, that’s gross.
+ New Wash & 3 other products were born after 5 years of research and development. The line contains 4 products that are not only cruelty-free, but healthy & simplify your life because they cut out the need for conditioner, hair masks, de-frizz serums, and color protectors.
New Wash Deets:
+ Contains: Aloe juice, and oils of Jojoba seed, Sunflower seed, and Peppermint cleanse instead of detergent.
+ Respects your hair and scalp.
+ Preserves your color.
+ Eliminates frizz.
+ Saves water, time, and money.
+ No need for conditioner or masque.
” New Wash is a combination of aloe vera and essential oils and doesn’t have detergent, doesn’t foam, doesn’t strip hair but effectively cleans hair and scalp. It’s not a co-wash, it cleans hair thoroughly, simply, but leaves hair feeling much better than before without the use of conditioner.”

I have to say that I was a bit skeptical at first because I have always always always needed to use conditioner, but I swear that after my first use, I could easily comb through the matted mass I call hair, it was softer, it was insanely less frizzy (huge deal since we live in such a humid climate), and it’s been preserving the red color I’ve been rocking lately.
I think the hardest thing to get used to was the zero suds. I’ve always been a believer in “the more suds, the better”, but my hair did feel cleaner using this magical substance vs. a sudsing shampoo.
Off to pack for California (check out what I’m shoving into my suitcase), and watch a movie.
